Whose IP is it anyway?
IP is relevant to all types of business – whether you are a kitchen designer or large scale R&D outfit, you and your employees, or “workers”, will be creating protectable IP on a regular basis. Failing to protect it for your business could have massive adverse consequences.
This webinar will include a summary of best practice arrangements for clearly capturing IP created by employees and others and the importance of having robust arrangements in place; especially in the context of modern, flexible working arrangements, the developing ‘gig economy’ and the emerging concept of “workers”. We will focus on protecting the confidential information and knowhow of a business, especially following an employee’s exit, and will discuss the recent judgment of the Court of Appeal regarding employee compensation under the Patents Act 1977.
